Ron was a lifelong resident of Monticello, where he was born, raised and graduated from Monticello High School.  Ron began his life long career in April of 1974 as a self employed licensed contractor and Master Electrician.  From there he began a business of Arduser Electric and Construction.  Ron and his brother Dave worked along side each other for 42 years, building many houses and remodels in the surrounding area.  He loved his work and trade, taking great pride in everything he did.

 Ron is survived by his wife, Peg, of 49 years, and their children Brett (Michelle) of Solon, Angie (Mark) Dutra of Anamosa, grandsons Cole Arduser and Gage Dutra, brother, Dave (Connie) Arduser.

 Ron was an avid Hawkeye fan and football season ticket holder for 40 years missing only two games during that time. 

The family would like to extend their deepest appreciation to Kaitlin Ahlskog and Mandy Hanken for their excellent care and compassion through this journey.  We are forever grateful to them both.
